HALLYUPOPFEST K-POP EXTRAVAGANZA RETURNS THIS MAY WITH HEADLINING ACTS SUPER JUNIOR, MONSTA X, NU’EST and WINNER
Fan favourites SUPER JUNIOR and MONSTA X are headlining HallyuPopFest 2019
SINGAPORE, March 23, 2019 | The most eagerly-anticipated K-pop music festival in the region, HallyuPopFest (HPF) returns this May for its second edition in Singapore. The best of Korean music and culture will converge at the electrifying K-pop extravaganza, which happens on the 25th and 26th of May 2019 at Singapore Indoor Stadium. Globally acclaimed superstars SUPER JUNIOR, will be headlining the festival, along with wildly popular bands such as MONSTA X, NU’EST and WINNER. In this year’s edition, a new segment, HallyuTown will also debut. It will function as the main festival square where HallyuPopFest’s much-loved Red Carpet event will be held. HallyuTown will be open to the public offering a variety of Hallyu-related booths and activities featuring K-Food, K-Beauty and K-Lifestyle, as well as a dedicated Fan Support area for fans to show their love and support for their idols.
As South East Asia’s first and largest K-pop festival, #HallyuPopFest was the most tweeted hashtag in Singapore in 2018, and last year’s festival saw over 25,000 attendees from all over the region. This year’s edition of the ‘Korean Wave Movement’ promises to be another spectacular event, with more unstoppable entertainment for K-pop fans.
Each event day, festival-goers get an all-in-one, day-to-night experience, starting with activities at HallyuTown, Showcase performances by up-and-coming K-pop artistes, the Red Carpet event, Artiste Engagement opportunities and finally our spectacular Evening Concerts featuring our headliner acts. The artiste line-up will boast a total of 15 performing acts including established boyband PENTAGON, top girl groups (G)I-DLE and OH MY GIRL, reggaeton group K.A.R.D, veteran soloist HYOLYN, chart-topping rock band N.FLYING, and talented rapper KANTO, as well as the next generation of K-pop music acts including GWSN, A.C.E, VERIVERY and TREI.
Boasting a full Korean technical team like last year, HallyuPopFest promises another spectacular backdrop for every artiste’s performance full of creative visuals and effects for more unforgettable performances.
“HallyuPopFest came about because we wanted to create a festival experience where K-pop fans from all over, from various fandoms could come together and celebrate their idol adoration, boundless energy and love for the music that are the cornerstones of K-pop,” said Selena Ho, CEO, H.A.H. Entertainment.
“We’re thrilled to bring together an amazing line-up comprising a diverse variety of Korean music genres, from pop to rap, rock and more. Besides the breadth of musical styles, we have a mix of acts from different generations catering to different fanbases. So, whether you’re a K-pop newbie or a long-time fan of a certain idol, our festival has something for everyone,” added Selena.
“As this is our second time participating in HPF, we’re beyond excited to continue our partnership with HallyuPopFest. We’re confident that the festival will be as spectacular as the first,” said CUBE Entertainment spokesperson.
Said spokesperson from PLEDIS Entertainment: “We’re thrilled to be a part of HallyuPopFest this year, as the event brings together many in Southeast Asia to enjoy the music and performances of Korean artists. Seeing as last year’s inaugural festival was a huge success, we are very much looking forward to participating this year.”
Every ticket gives festival goers access to two concert events per day – the afternoon Showcase that runs about 2 hours long, and the 3-hour Evening Concert where headliners will perform individual sets of at least 30 minutes each, making it a “concert within a concert”. For Category 1, 2 and 3 ticket holders who would like a more personal fan experience, they may opt for the HallyuPass for Artiste Engagement which gives them a once-in-a-lifetime interaction experience with an artiste performing that day.
